Security Door Conversion

Completed conversion

A major renovation on an Inner West semi led the owner to want to replace the existing steel security door. To keep costs down we suggested to retain the existing installation but replace the bars with a new design that reflected the design of the front door.

The front door had a circular glass window surrounded by rectangular glass panels. The door was carefully measured along with the security door and a new design drawn up to reflect the front door.

The existing security door and surround was removed and taken to the workshop where the bars were cut out to accommodate the new design. The frame of the existing security door had been powder coated and this all had to be removed before any work could commence. A quote to get the frame sand blasted was extremely excessive so it had to be done by hand. Tedious but effective.

After the new design had been set up in the frame and welded in place the door was cold gal primed before applying a second primer coat and then two top coats to complete the build.
